Buying pears

  • Buy raw and ripe pears for their sweet flavor.
  • According to Food Hero, always opt for ones that feel firm.
  • There should be no cuts or blemishes on the skin. 

Quick Tip!

If you want to check how ripe it is, apply pressure along the neck of the fruit. But if it creates a slight dent, the fruit is ripe. The stem should also be intact. Overripe ones will feed soft and mushy, but these can still be used for smoothies and even soups!

Storing pears

  • Use ripe ones immediately but you can also store them in the fridge for up five days.
  • On the other hand, firm and unripe ones can be kept at room temperature.
  • Drizzle pear slices with lemon juice.
